SCRAMBLIN’ ON

The beautiful thing with a tofu scramble is the ability to be diverse with what you put in to it, so long as you know a few things. First, if you add salt it will make the tofu have a more egg like, fluffy texture and dry out the “spongey” element, and also, due to that “spongey” element, it is essential to add a bountiful amount of flavours! You can add whatever vegetables or lack thereof and stick just to the spice blend.
